My initial app flow was as follows:
Welcome screen > Login > Home Menu (5 options)
However I've noticed that most apps direct users directly to a menu section, keeping the menu behind a hamburger. I've since reworked the flow to lead directly into a dashboard page. I think this is the right design decision for an app that depends on users keeping their info up to date, but I'm wondering: there is ever a case for forcing users through a home menu selection?
For instance, if you don't know which section users will default to initially, it seems like would be easier to remove a top level screen than to add one.
